Sinnet Drops New LP Gentle Humor, Plays The Lilypad 5/5

Boston's spookiest indie-rockers, Sinnet, are celebrating the culmination of years of hard work in their new LP, Gentle Humor.  The band, led by Aaron Spransy (The Fatal Flaw) creates a smooth, soulful vibe that immediately infects the listener.  At times moody and ambient, Sinnet are becoming the masters of off-kilter indie pop.  Check them out at The Lilypad in Cambridge on May 5 for their record release, featuring The Silver Mirrors and American Echoes or hit up their website for Spring tour dates in a city near you.  You can also pick up Gentle Humor on 5/8 when the album drops. -Brian Varneke

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Blubird

Inspired to make music by Philly’s robust DIY scene, the youthful band, Blubird, which is made of Alex Black Bessen (drums, vocals, guitar), Erez Potok-Holmes (vocals, guitar), Henry Wolgast (guitar, drums), and Jack Correll (bass), is our most recent Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner. The fellas are about to go their separate ways for college, but they still have plans to record/release more music and play a bunch of shows in and out of town. However, before all this goes down, you can learn more about the soon-to-be high school graduates and the band’s brief history HERE.

Minimalist noise rockers GOLD DIME (members of Talk Normal) announces debut LP

Minimalism and noise rock are two musical waves NYC has proudly fed and bred over the decades; the latest product of their fusion is GOLD MINE, a project led by drummer and vocalist Andrya Ambro of now defunct noise duo Talk Normal (which made the cover of The Deli in our 2010 Best of NYC issue). The band, performing live as a trio since 2014, will be releasing debut LP 'Nerve' on June 2nd, and judging from the preview track 'Easy' (streaming below), we are in for a suspenceful, tense, unnervingly sincere record. The record release party is scheduled for June 3rd at Alphaville.

Bedroom recorder DALTON changes gears on his latest EP, ANIMAL

Singer-songwriter Nate Harar has been quietly working on a new collection of songs for his first release in over two years. Herar, who goes by the moniker DALTON, hasn't necessarily changed his technique even if his approach to songwriting has altered since the release of his garage rock-leaning debut effort. In shedding his former skin, Herar is now exploring the more contemplative side of art pop after a time of personal uncertainty. He's generously revealed two tracks off of his latest upcoming EP ANIMAL, Proem and Myanmar, both of which feature sparse arrangements of lavish ambience under achingly intimite observations. His metamorphosis is now complete.

ANIMAL is out on May 5 via his official bandcamp page.

Pet Heads is the brainchild of Carlos Coronado. I wanna call it indie-soul. They have just released a video for the track "Strange Serenity". It's a dreamy tune with soulful synth and smooth vocals. The video features Mr.Coronado himself showing his best solo rhythmic steps which impressed the lady enough for her to help him finish it off. Cool and unique track with a video to match. See 'em Saturday May 6 at Handlebar in Kensington along with Yeomans, Champion Ski and The Drywall Heels. - Kris Gies
